European Teams: How Ukraine prevailed


After looking closely at the most critical victory of Ukraine from the European Team Championship final round against Armenia, I can only confess that not much can be understood in this game with engines' assessments, available to mere mortals these days. I don't remember the last time I had to use the 'unclear' assessment so often in annotations to a particular game! This is rather disappointing ... to be able to understand so little. As a player who scored +4 =2 in his classical games against the future world champion Carlsen, Volokitin surely should be able to understand more.
